Heart Rate Monitor
Keep your correct beat
Don’t just train based on how you feel, train according to what your body’s really doing. Live feedback from heart rate data allows you to structure your training. Our coaching feature integrates directly with heart rate information, letting you know when you need to push harder, or dial back the effort.
Focus on the correct exercises
You focus on the exercise, and we’ll focus on the counting. Our Automatic Rep Count feature tracks your movement via sensors in our earbuds, gives you a countdown on your smartphone’s screen, and provides feedback via in-ear notifications. On your screen you can also watch videos highlighting the correct way to perform an exercise.
Work your correct cardio
VO2 measures your cardiovascular system by assessing your body’s ability to absorb oxygen. From that, we can help determine your fitness level. Now you know if you’re working out in the correct VO2 range, such as your heart rate zone.
Set your correct pace
Based on your training, current fitness level, and the times you’ve been running/cycling, we can help you to predict how long it will take you complete your distance. We can also help you to improve on your time.
Keep the correct recovery times
You’re working hard to reach your goals – but good training requires understanding how long your body needs to recover between exercises and workout sessions. That’s why we built an app that analyses your training results and live feedback, and lets you know when – and for how long – you need to rest.
Be more aware of your surroundings
With just the touch of a button you can be more aware of your surroundings with hear through, which conveniently filter in the sounds that surround you.

Jabra Elite Sport review: Worthy AirPod rivals are like a Fitbit for your ears
The original Jabra Elite Sport review, published in December 2016, follows.
No, the Apple AirPods aren't the only "true wireless" headphones you can buy. Several other competitors have trickled into the market for standalone left and right earbuds in recent months, including the Motorola VerveOnes, Samsung Galaxy Gear IconX, Erato Apollo 7, Earin and the upcoming Here One. And now Jabra has entered the zero-wire fray with its Elite Sport wireless sports earbuds. They're available in the US ($250), UK (£230) and the EU (250 euros), with an Australian launch slated for later in the year (pricing not yet announced, but US price converts to approximately AU$330).
What makes the Elite Sport so elite? For starters, the 'buds are fully sweat- and waterproof. There's also an integrated heart-rate monitor that provides "in-ear fitness analysis" and, as you'd suspect from a Jabra headphone, they work quite well as a headset for making calls, with built-in noise reduction technology. According to Jabra, the earbuds analyze external sounds and automatically switch to the earbud with least background noise. I had no problem making calls from the noisy streets of New York, which is a feat.
What also impressed me about these guys was their ability to maintain a steady, hiccup-free connection and stay in my ears while running. They also sound quite decent, though with in-ear noise-isolating headphones such as these, it's crucial that you get a tight seal to get the best sound quality, and you'll have to try out a few of the various tips and fins that Jabra provides before you settle into a fit you're satisfied with.
Once again, none of the included eartips allowed me to get a tight seal. But I dug up an extra large silicone tip from the myriad tips I have lying around the office and -- voilà -- the sound improved by 25 percent, particularly the bass. The only problem was that with those larger tips, the earbuds didn't quite fit in their charging case (I couldn't snap the lid completely shut).
Of course, there's a good chance one of the tips will fit you perfectly and you won't have this problem (my ears are admittedly tough to fit, but there are plenty of people out there with ears that are tough to fit with in-ear sports headphones).
Another downside is the earphones are somewhat beefy. And while they should fit most people's ears pretty well -- and fairly comfortably -- due to their size and the shape of my ear, I didn't find them supercomfortable, though I felt better about them once I found the right tip.
Like competing products, battery life isn't great -- they're rated at just three hours of music listening -- but it's easy to get extra juice by slipping them into their charging case, which has an integrated battery that gives you two additional charges.
You can use the headphones with your favorite iOS and Android running and fitness apps, including Endomondo, RunKeeper, MapMy Fitness, Runtastic, and Strava, but Jabra has its own training-management app called Jabra Sport Life that's good, too, and gives you in-ear coaching and feedback.
The heart-rate sensor picks up your heart rate through your ear and there's an initial delay of about 5 to 10 seconds before it picks up what appears to be an accurate measurement -- or pretty accurate, anyway.
I'm not going to do a deep dive into all the fitness aspects of the headphone, but I will say this is one of the stronger early entries in the totally wireless headphone arena.
It's not without its small flaws. I thought the buds could fit in their case a little better (even with the buds wearing a set of the supplied tips and stabilizers the case had a little trouble closing all the way). I also encountered the occasional issue where the two buds wouldn't link together into a stereo pair. I had to fiddle around with my Bluetooth settings and put the disconnected bud back in the charging case, then bring it out again so it would wake up.
It also takes some trial and error to figure out what the little buttons on the earpieces exactly control (there are volume controls and a pause/play button) and it certainly helps to read the manual because the headphones and the app have a lot of technology and features to wade through. For instance, there's a HearThrough feature that allows more ambient noise to enter your ears, a good safety feature for runners who want to hear traffic noise (or if you simply want to talk to someone without removing the headphones). However, if you're playing your music loud, you won't be able to hear traffic noise, even with the HearThrough feature switched on.
As I said, the battery life could be better, and the price could be lower. But aside from those caveats, they do work surprisingly well and should improve with time as Jabra continues to tweak their software (you can update the firmware).
It's also worth mentioning that hard-core athletes will appreciate that they have a three-year warranty against failure due to sweat. Oh, and if you lose one bud, Jabra will give you a good deal on a replacement bud. Or so the folks there told me.
Here are the Sport Elite's key specs:
- Superior sound with up to three hours of music and calls (plus up to six hours additional charge from the portable charging case)
- Flexible wearing options with single or stereo earbud use
- Advanced heart rate analysis with automatic fitness level testing of VO2 Max, recovery advisor and race predictor
- Two integrated microphones in each earbud
- Background noise reduction
- Audio pass-through allows you to tune in to your surroundings at the touch of a button

Jabra Elite Sport review
This may seem weird but there was a time when AirPods weren’t as common as they are now. At the time that these came out, if you wanted true wireless earbuds you didn’t have many options. While most buds at that time were average at best, the Jabra Elite Sport excelled. Now that some time has passed and everyone is pretty familiar with the new product category, how do those original earbuds hold up? Let’s find out.
Editor’s note: this Jabra Elite Sport review was updated on June 8, 2021, to include the Sony WF-1000XM4, JLab GO Air, and Anker Soundcore Spirit Dot 2 to the alternatives section.
Who should get the Jabra Elite Sport?
- People who go to the gym. Not only are these IP67 sweatproof, but they also have a built-in heart rate sensor that goes along with the app.
- People who appreciate a minimalist approach to design. The all-black design of the buds are discreet, and the complete opposite of the loud AirPods design.
- Anyone who doesn’t mind bad battery life. At just 3 hours, these are fine for the gym but don’t expect them to last much longer without needing to go back in the case.
What’s it like to use the Jabra Elite Sport?
The Jabra Elite Sport comes with a nice charging case that keeps them in place while they’re not in use.
Just by looking at them, the Jabra Elite Sports are what I envision when I think of my perfect pair of true wireless buds, just a little slimmer. All black, minimal earbuds that you can discreetly pop in and out of your ear throughout the day. Before you can do that, you will need to find the right combination of wingtips and ear tips. I found that just the largest pair of memory foam tips with no ear wings worked perfectly for me, but your mileage may vary. Once I figured it out, I had no problem keeping these in my ear whether I was running or commuting on the train. Unfortunately, these are still kind of large and will probably jut out of your ears. That’s just a side effect of the technology from that time though, and it’s true that newer models are slimmer but not by much.
The Jabra Elite Sport earbuds have tiny playback controls on the outside of each earbud.
On the bright side, these are made for exercise. They’re IP67 certified which gives them protection against sweat, and they have a built heart rate sensor along with a very health-centered app (more on that later). It’s good that these don’t fall out but unfortunately, they do get a little uncomfortable after about an hour of listening. I wouldn’t call it painful but you’ll be aware of the placement in your ear, which is also kind of good since you probably don’t want to lose one. Speaking of which, the charging case has a little bit of a pop to it when you’re opening it and the first time opening up the case I almost lost an earbud. It popped open and sent the right earbud flying under my seat. Just a fair warning so you don’t go opening the case near a sewer or something.
Related: What makes a good pair of in-ears?
When you open the box you’ll get a charging case, the headphones, three sets of silicone ear tips, and three sets of memory foam ear tips, two sized wingtips, a micro USB cable to charge the case, and a small box with the quick start guide and warranty information inside.
Do the earbuds stay connected?
Be careful when opening the charging case as there’s a bit of a pop to them that can send an earbud flying if you’re not careful.
This is the part of the review where the “true wireless” part of these earbuds gets put to the test. The audio signal has to get sent from the source device to the master earbud, then from there, it gets relayed over to the other earbud, and then has to playback with no delays and skips. In three days of constant testing, I’ve only had two or three quick stutters during playback. Otherwise, these played back perfectly.
The left earbud gave out once, but that was it.
The only major issue I had was once on the second day when the left earbud just gave out for some reason and I had to put them back in the case and let them reset. Since then I’ve been on the lookout for it to happen again, but it hasn’t. Pretty impressive considering all of the features these have packed into them. One of my favorite features has to be Passthrough, which uses the microphones in the earbuds to let you hear what’s going on around you. This is useful for when you need to be aware of your surroundings, or just want to talk to someone quickly without removing the buds entirely. The new AirPods Pro do this too, but the Jabra Elite Sport was one of the first true wireless earbuds to do this effectively.
On the left earbud is the volume up and down buttons, which also let you skip between tracks if you hold them down. The right earbud has the play/pause/power button which also answers phone calls if tapped and activates the heart-rate sensor if you hold it down. The top button lets you open up the Jabra Sport app if you tap it, or start a workout by holding it down. The app itself isn’t as user-friendly as my main fitness app, but it does provide way more information especially when paired with the heart rate sensor in the earbud. You can get training from a voice coach right in your ear and it’ll rate your workout depending on how hard it was for which can be both rewarding and shameful, depending on your workout. There’s also an option to “find my headphones” which will cause them to emit a high pitched sound so you can easily locate them as long as they are within range.
How’s the battery life of the Jabra Elite Sport?
Like most true wireless earbuds, the battery life on these isn’t great at only about three hours. But they do come with a charging case that lets you recharge it two more times for a total of nine hours of listening times. The Jabra Elite Sport show their age when it comes to battery life. Three hours is fine for most workouts, but is nowhere near what is needed for average use throughout the day. Now the average that we see in true wireless earbuds is closer to five or six hours. True, that still isn’t great, but it’s almost double what these will offer.
If you don’t have the time to let them charge completely they also have a quick charge feature which will give you an hour of listening time in only 15 minutes of charging. Just enough time for a decent run or workout.
How do the Jabra Elite Sport earbuds sound?
I wasn’t expecting these to sound amazing and they don’t, but I was surprised at how good these sound. Soundstage obviously isn’t too amazing but as far as quality goes they don’t sound that much worse than other regular fitness buds that were released at that time. Since the release of these, there have been a number of true wireless earbuds focused on good sound but these still aren’t bad for exercise.
The Jabra Elite Sport have a quick-charging feature, so just a few minutes in the case will give you an extra boost.
I usually expect a higher emphasis on the bass in workout earbuds and the Elite Sport didn’t let me down. If you’re looking for that extra push to your music to help push you past the pain of workout, these won’t disappoint. That said, the fact that these are already so close to your ears means that songs tend to sound too bass heavy as the lows really push through their limits. The rhythmic bass of Feel It Coming by The Weeknd made its way nicely throughout the song but it, along with the steady bass kick almost feel like the main part of the song.
Overall the mids kind of battled with the low end and resulted in some masking of the lower notes. This was really present in Redboneby Childish Gambino where I’m more used to the vocals being more forward sounding, floating over the top of the instrumental which wasn’t the case here. The low end definitely had more of a say than the rest of the frequencies.
The Elite Sport earphones amplify bass notes, but not to an uncomfortable degree.
Highs were pulled back plenty which is great if you’re not a fan of harshness, but it does take away from detail in cymbals and hi-hats. Overall, it sounds like Jabra played it safe and took off a little more than was necessary to avoid any painful sounds and I agree with the decision since these are sitting right in my ear, but the choice is kind of noticeable, and cymbals, tambourines, and hi-hats are just barely there.
So should you buy the Jabra Elite Sport?
You should definitely avoid buying these right now. When the Jabra Elite Sport true wireless was first released, they were some of the best true wireless earbuds you can get. Now, they’re just average. The sound quality is average, the ease of use is average, the battery life is below average, and while the heart-rate sensor is still cool, it’s no longer the must-have feature it once was. If you can find them on sale, you can still make good use of these in the gym, but as of right now these will run you around $219 USD which is simply ridiculous. There are plenty of better true wireless options available now and while the Jabra Elite Sport is still a solid pair of buds, you should probably skip them unless you can find them for way cheaper.
Get the Jabra Elite Active or Jabra Elite 85t instead
The IP57 rating means the Elite Active 75t are resistant to dust and water.
The Jabra Elite Active 75t lacks the Elite Sport’s heart rate sensor but features an IP57 build and a more compact design. Originally, these earphones relied only on passive isolation, but Jabra added noise cancelling to its Elite 75t series headsets with a significant software update. If you don’t need heart rate monitoring, the Elite Active 75t are a much better option, with better battery life, more modern design, and more comfortable button controls. If you want a pair of durable, top-tier true wireless noise cancelling earphones, save up for the Jabra Elite 85t instead.
What about the Apple AirPods Pro?
The Apple AirPods Pro have indentations to indicate where the touch controls are located.
Since the release of the Jabra Elite Sport, the true wireless market has exploded. Now there’s better tech, better sound, and even lower prices in some cases. Starting with the better tech, there are options like the AirPods Pro and Sony WF-1000XM4 true wireless earbuds. Both of which have the transparency mode of these, but with the added benefit of some seriously impressive active noise cancelling. Everyone is familiar at this point with how well AirPods are suited for iOS users, but if you’re an Android user then you might want to check out the Google Pixel Buds (2020) which offer a similar experience. Alternatively, Samsung Galaxy smartphone owners should consider the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro, which are IPX7-rated.
Those options are going to cost you, though. If you want to keep it under $100, there are still some pretty great products to choose from like JLab GO Air and Anker Soundcore Spirit Dot 2.
